Lost your Christmas cheer? Then head to the Alps
Category: > | 06th Dec, 2011
Commercial just doesn't cover it. There are baubles in the shops from September; tinsel in taxis from October and I've received extensive Christmas lists from my nieces by early November. Morzine Loves Christmas extravaganza, offering different musical events, fireworks, shows and snacks. From December 20 - 21 The Fairy Godmothers are visiting the streets of Morzine, performing, dancing on stilts, reciting poetry and offering out some lovely Christmas snacks! From December 22 to December 23 children are invited to a Face painting event at the Tourist Office. And on 27th December the village invites you to watch all the ski instructors from Morzine ESF in a torch lit decent down the main Pleney slope. There is mulled wine and a firework display. It is truly something to behold. But the biggest treat of all is a visit to Father Christmas who lives in Les Gets. Just a few minutes drive from Morzine is the home of Santa. If you are lucky you might catch a glimpse of him if you stroll through the streets of Les Gets over Christmas. It also has masses of Christmas activities for two whole weeks including light shows, choirs, markets and fireworks. Whether it be music concerts in Châtel, street parades in Chamonix, ice sculptures in Megève or a real Nordic village in Samoens, the Alps really should be your new Christmas destination. It has so much to offer. So, if you have decided that you prefer a day on the slopes followed by a glass of vin chaud, a few Christmas carols and fireworks a plenty then Alpine Christmases are for you.
